The Africa - Mobile Broadband Market 2014 research report offers a wealth of information on the mobile broadband market in 37 African countries. Subjects covered include: Statistics, trends and analysis; Major market players and M-commerce, m-payments, m-banking. The research says mobile broadband growth is doubling each year, with three-quarters of all connections to be 3G/4G by 2020. The African region is witnessing one of the strongest increases in mobile data use in the world. Forecasts suggest that mobile internet traffic across Africa will double between 2014 and 2015, and will see a 20-fold increase by the end of the decade. Services based on 3G networks will be dominant within three years, replacing older and more limited 2G technology. By 2020, about three-quarters of all mobile connections will be on 3G or 4G, and thereafter the focus for operators will be on making use of released spectrum to expand the reach of LTE networks beyond the major cities. Another key facilitator is mobile banking and m-commerce. Mobile banking has taken root in a number of markets, particularly in Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, Rwanda and Tanzania. This has supported a fast developing m-commerce sector which is enabling mobile-based transactions, remittances and payments between a growing number of participating banks. Such facilities across borders are making m-commerce a viable international service within the region.

3G networks remain dominant in most African markets; commercial LTE services gain wider footprint; CDMA2000 1x EV-DO deployed in around 30 African countries, offering up to 3Mb/s; mobile broadband accounting for up to 90% of all broadband connections in several markets; newly built international fibre optic cables and national backbone networks supporting broadband growth; m-banking services gaining -Pesa mobile banking service in Kenya carries about 20% of the country's entire GDP.

The report on Africa - Mobile Voice Market and Major Network Operators provide data and information on Algeria, Angola, Benin, Botswana, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cameroon, Chad, Cote d'Ivoire, Democratic Republic of Congo, Djibouti, Egypt, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Gabon, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Kenya, Lesotho, Liberia, Libya, Madagascar, Malawi, Mali, Mauritius, Morocco, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, Rwanda, Senegal, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Sudan, South Sudan, Swaziland, Tanzania, Tunisia, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe. As a result of fixed-line limitations, mobile services still represent more than 90% of all telephone lines in service. The popularity of cheaper prepaid services, which in some markets account for up to 98% of all mobile subscribers, as well as a steady fall in tariffs has meant that an increasing proportion of the population can both access and afford a mobile phone.

Some market consolidation continues to occur in the region, with a small number of players, notably Bharti Airtel, MTN, Orange and Tigo, now having a significant multinational presence. In early 2014 Etisalat sold to Maroc Telecom its Moov-branded mobile subsidiaries in Benin, Burkina Faso, Central African Republic, Ivory Coast, Niger and Togo. The deal enabled Maroc Telecom to consolidate control of the West Africa operations and make use of its experience in this region. Newly introduced converged licensing regimes have also increased competitive pressure among operators, and have enabled them to branch into new service segments.

The 2014 research on Africa - Internet and Fixed Broadband Market says improved international connectivity is reducing internet access pricing for consumers across the continent. Most investment at the local level is handicapped by the poor condition of fixed-line infrastructure in many parts of various countries, particularly in rural areas which also suffer from no or intermittent electricity supply. As a result, many of the local improvements in internet access seen in recent years have been confined to the principal cities. Nevertheless, in adapting to these restrictions telcos serving rural areas have elected to invest in mobile infrastructure to provide voice and 3G-based data services. There is limited Fibre-to-the-Premise (FttP) infrastructure, mainly serving select areas of some cities, though the sector continues to develop. Report highlights include:

  • Key developments in the internet and broadband sectors of African countries;
  • Profiles of major Internet Service Providers (ISPs);
  • Overview of DSL services and WiMAX networks, with pricing comparisons;
  • Updates on CDMA-2000 network rollouts;
  • Market developments relating to international and national infrastructure projects
  • FttP developments;
  • Regulatory policies affecting investment strategies.
